According to the latest reports, the South Korean tech giant is gearing up for the comeback of the Galaxy A8 handset.
It's an interesting decision on Samsung's part to release the Galaxy S8 in a new color at this point, seeing how the phone is nearly eight months old. Leaked photos suggest that the new A8 will sport an nearly all-screen display with slimmer bezels. The device also boasts dual rear cameras and has a pretty decent 3,000 mAh battery.
Samsung may change to Android 8.1 at a later stage in the testing procedure, however traditionally the organization for the most part handles things, it won't not occur until a couple of months after the Galaxy S9 has gone on sale. Still, the company is reportedly planning to re-launch A8 next year, which may also feature the same all-metal casing. If LG succeeds in that aim, it would be able to claim a technological breakthrough that has long eluded both Samsung and Apple. The handset is now also available in "Burgundy Red", a colour which for now is exclusive to the Galaxy S8 only. Brushing up the spec-sheet, the Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch QuadHD+ (2960x1440) "Infinity Display" with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and 570 ppi pixel density.More news: 'Lady Bird' sets record for highest approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes
When Samsung released the Galaxy S8 back in April, the company was heavily praised for the phone's great-looking take on the bezel-less design that is slowly becoming a smartphone staple. Among the prominent ones are Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7.
Most of Samsung's Android 8.0 Oreo plans remain in the shadows, but we continue to see new information popup as we close in on 2018. The devices are speculated to follow the trend in current premium handsets with taller 18:9 display ratio.
